HVF is an umbrella project for Max Levchin’s data-focused undertakings. Its core thesis is that thanks to low-cost sensors of every imaginable type, near-ubiquitous wireless broadband, advances in distributed computing and storage, data is becoming our most plentiful, and most under-exploited commodity. The insights mined from it will unlock enormous productivity gains, create efficiencies where none existed before, and meaningfully improve lives. The mission of HVF is to be the catalyst of that transformation.
HVF is located in Jackson Square in San Francisco, away from the hustle of SOMA, but still 10-minute walk from the BART, and the Ferry Building.
